• Short Summary

    Brief shots of a wrecked pier and debris on the sea front at Margate after severe weather.

  • Description

    Margate, Kent.

    Brief shots of the wreckage left on the sea front at Margate after severe storms. A pier looks like it has been broken in two. Rocks and what looks like slate roof tiles cover the ground and holiday beach chalets are wrecked. A few people walk along the front past the debris and small upturned boats - the weather still looks quite bad.

    Note: there is only about 13 seconds of visuals; the remainder is soundtrack only.
